Happy Endings

Gizmo (FKA as “Shuffle”) was one of a litter rescued from a backyard, shortly before a terrible storm. He was so shy, we worried he’d never “show well” to potential adopters. But one kind couple gave him a chance, and within two days, had decided he had to be part of their family. He’s a cherished member, now — out of his shell and loving life!
Our Pawlina is the most loving, sweet girl you’d ever want. Unfortunately, she is FIV-positive and was frequently overlooked. This only means that a little bit of extra care is needed; FIV kitties can lead a long, healthy life. Her new parents stepped up, welcoming this beautiful girl into their home and renaming her “Clara.” They tell us that she is playful and affectionate, and they couldn’t be happier with her!
Gordy — now known as “Brady” — was rescued from a cold winter storm with his tiny littermates. After growing and thriving in a loving foster home, he found his forever family. They just sent us this picture, depicting how he likes to spend snowy days: in front of the heat vent! At last, he can enjoy the snowflakes from INSIDE!
Pretty little Dinah is dressed in her Christmas bow! She was found as a tiny kitten, struggling to survive all on her own. Her foster family only intended to give her a temporary home, but fell in love with this sweet baby and made her a permanent part of the crowd. Dinah now shares her home with a bunny, some fish and humans who treasure her.
Bart was wandering, cold and hungry. We rescued him from certain death and took him into a warm foster home where he became an immediate favorite. After several months of being passed over for cute kittens, a woman and her son came to look for a new friend to add to their family. Bart immediately won them over and is now spending his days as “Lord of the Manor.” As it should be!
Cooper was found living in a dirty warehouse. From the jump, he was super-friendly and took to foster care immediately. Several baths later, his beautiful white fur (with just a ginger dusting on top of his head) came through. Everyone who met him fell in love, but one family in particular felt he’d be a perfect companion for their cat. Cooper is loving his cozy new home, where he never has to sleep on a cold floor or struggle for food. Sweet dreams, little man!
Brady the pug was desperately in need of a new home, after a new baby and a move were put into the mix. We searched dozens of applications to find him the perfect family. These folks had lost their beloved dog a year earlier and had done their homework on a new pet. Brady fit the bill perfectly for them — and from his reaction when they met, they fit his criteria too. Brady has a nice big yard to run around in, and a family who’s eager to provide him with the care and exercise an energetic boy needs. It’s such a happy ending for this sweet pooch. Yay for Brady!
Yuki and Kuron were left stranded when their mother went into a home for Alzheimer’s care. For months, they patiently waited at several foster homes, hoping someone would ignore the cute kittens that were everywhere, and give them a chance. Happily for us, Tamara adopted Yuki… then just weeks later, brought Kuron into her home. They have since become part of the family, playing with Tamara’s cat, Knuckles, and giving each other happy cat kisses! These two old friends are so thrilled that they’ve got a second chance together.
Bucky, now named “Elliot,” was found shivering and starving during a winter storm. He’s since been fattened up, but has been shuttled through five different foster homes. His new mom has had issues of her own: she lost her husband, dog and two cats in the same year (can you imagine??…) and was just now ready to open her heart to a furry friend. Elliot arrived right before Christmas and immediately made himself at home. The first night, he slept on his new mom’s bed and the two have been fast friends ever since. After some tough breaks for both of ‘em, they’ve each found their “other half” and couldn’t be happier!
Little Cayla (pictured) and her sister Celine were originally going to be fostered by a family with two little girls. But the girls fell head over heels with these beautiful babies and couldn’t let them go. They’re now enjoying life together as a “fur family.” Look at the smile on Anastasia’s face!
Sadie and Edward were inseperable when they first came to us. Sadie found her forever home first. It took Edward a little longer, but the wait was worth it: he went to the same home! Their owners just sent us a photo of them, snuggling as they used to. Friends forever!
We found Kristine shivering and starving, right before Christmas. This gorgeous girl has finally found her forever home with a nice couple who are doting on our princess. She has sunny windows to look out of, a new bed, toys and a family who are planning to spoil her rotten — as it should be.
Collin was just adopted by a wonderful young family. They were looking for a companion for themselves as well as their young cat, dog and rabbit. Collin has found his forever home and is being pampered and loved by his newest two legged and four legged friends. We’re so happy for this little guy.
After being dumped on the streets, Sadie has found her forever home with a wonderful couple who is in love with her. They lost their two cats last year and had been looking and waiting for ‘the special cat’ that would be part of their family. When they saw Sadie, they knew she was ‘the one’ and she felt the same way. Once Sadie is established in her new home, her parents will look for a feline friend for her. So two cats will get a terrific home!
After his original owner passed away, Christopher-Robin has found his forever home with a wonderful young family who loves him like crazy. He spends his days surrounded by big windows and lots of light. In the evening, when everyone is home, he lounges with them and gets lots of attention. Christopher-Robin, our own sweet little boy has a great new life.
Bonnie is a beautiful 9 year old Bouvier des Flanders -- but her family had to give her up. They looked EVERYWHERE for a group that would help rehome their pretty girl -- but were declined at every turn. Euthanasia was even suggested for this perfectly healthy animal. But CATS stepped up and worked tirelessly to find Bonnie a great new home. We just got this picture from her thrilled new "parents." Hooray for Bonnie!
Raiden was picked up off the street by a kind woman who took pity on this tiny, abandoned kitten. He got wonderful medical care from C.A.T.S. and lots of love in his foster home. Recently, he was adopted by a woman who had lost her cat of many years. Her husband said she was so depressed, but once Raiden came into their lives, she regained her smile. This wonderful little man is enjoying big sunny windows, lots of playtime and belly rubs!

These two little buttons were found in a box, taken in by CATS and given lots of love and care. After a few months in foster care, a young couple eager to add two fur-babies to their home met them and fell in love. The couple had never owned cats before, but our trained volunteers walked them through every step, showing them how to trim nails, the best kinds of toys and how kittens love boxes (see the photo). Beverly and Spencer are now treasured members of the family, having converted two more to being "cat people."
Someone tried to throw these kittens away - literally. But one of our volunteers heard some pathetic mewing and rescued them, in the nick of time. After some time spent recuperating and being introduced to other cats (and a dog), Ernest and Daphne found a wonderful new home. The family had lost one of their beloved cats, and the resident cat was sad. These two little ones brought her back to life and all three are having a wonderful life together. She's taken to them like a mom. Yay!
Sweet Molly was moved from pillar to post in her short life. This loving girl just couldn't catch a break, being returned to the shelter more than once (because of the adopters, not her). Finally, a woman who had recently lost her kitty companion saw her profile. The two met and it was love at first sight. Molly is now enjoying a warm "forever" home and giving her new "mom" lots of love. The two couldn't be happier -- and neither can we!
Dash's owner had to surrender him, after she was diagnosed with cancer. He was NOT happy. For months, our foster volunteers worked to understand his aggression, knowing that a sweet boy lurked beneath his unpredictable behavior. He was a tough case, but we didn't give up, and finally, we broke through. Dash is now enjoying life with his new family. He's found his happiness -- and we have too!
